Mr. Samuel J. Seymour, the last living eyewitness to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C. was the mystery guest on the February 8, 1956 episode of the I've Got a Secret game show. Mr. Seymour (March 28, 1860 – April 12, 1956) was actually 95 years of age at the time of this appearance instead of 96.

I realize that clips from this show are available elsewhere on YouTube, but I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to put it on my channel and share it with those of you who may not have already seen it. I have also added an excerpt of the article mentioned to the end of the video which sheds a little more light on Mr. Seymour's horrifying experience.
Here is the link to the article, "I Saw Lincoln Shot" by/about Mr. Seymour mentioned in the video: https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=wHUxAAAAIBAJ&sjid=SBAEAAAAIBAJ&pg=5624%2C3979599

Excellent job, HistoryFlicks4u. Thank you for the article inclusion and link!
Important additions like that are as important as old movie credits,
which are shrunk, and compressed for time, so you can't see the names
when you recognize an early star, or the production dates to get
important historical perspective. Thank you HistoryFlicks4u.
John Wilks Booth!!! A Hero to Real Americans!
Abe Lincoln was a traitor to the constitution & To The White Mans Right To Live Free in the Country We Built!!!
Long Live The Confederate States Of America!!!!
It reminds me of the supercentenarian, Emma Morano (117) who died in 2017 and was the last verified person alive born in the 1800’s. The changes and history these people saw were incredible. Phones, cars , radio, tv, planes, space travel and computers etc. it’s amazing.
I was 13 when this show first aired! We watched it every week, but I don't recall this one. My grandfather was born in 1889. He and I were in a car wreck when I was five, and he was killed. You get old before you know it! :)
I smell a rat. His testimony of a man falling out of the balcony isn;t reflected anywhere in the article shown. Instead a 5yr old recalls detail after detail. Right.. It's just another example of history being written by the wanna be powers. I will never trust "official narratives" again. Liars and deceptions.
When Mr. Samuel died I was 3 and my grandmother, Maria Clara Bowen, who was the daughter of Adam Little Berry Bowen, son of Col. William Bowen who fought in the civil war, told me the history of the War and also of the murder of Abraham Lincoln . My great-grandfather was born on November 1, 1850 in Milam County, Texas, and came to Brazil in 1867, then 16 years old. He lived in the city of Marliéria in the State of Minas Gerais and died on February 25, 1933 in Belo Horizonte state capital.
Today a have 65.
You need to take care of yourself so you don't become debilitated. But, you can live too long. Strike the right balance of respect for your body and using it as an amusement park, so that you are active and healthy and having fun until you're 70, and then you just tip over suddenly one day. LOL.
They were. A high school graduate from the mid 20th century has a better education than a person with a bachelor's degree today. That is by design. Right wingers have been dumbing down the public schools for decades to rid themselves of people who aren't susceptible to propaganda.
Coincidentally he was also at the signing of the 13th Amendment and remembers after the signing the freed Africans started screaming "now let's go rape white women" !!!! From Kitty Genovese to Channon Christian & Christopher Newsom and all the other of thousands of white victims - RIP 🕊
Must be crazy to see all of the technology changes from log houses and horse carriage to cars and homes with air conditioning, entertainment from live shows to being able to watch tv and radios I cant even imagine
Just goes to show history ain't as distant as you think...my father was born in the 1930s and his grandmother who used to babysit him as his mother and aunts went to work was a former slave, but her exact birth date is unknown, in the 1940 census she is listed head of household with an "estimated birthday" of 1872, she says 1872 was the year she went to military headquarters in Vicksburg to "check" in with the feds to get paperwork because he former owners had saved enough money to send her to school, and she spoke of ghost towns in Mississippi and dead bodies everywhere, I learned through research this must be the Yellow Fever of 1876 or 1878.
Mineral purifiers naturally sanitize the water while keeping the amount of chemical additives to a minimum, saving time and money.
Chlorine - most common type of cleaning system Frog - Mineral based system that helps reduce amount of needed chlorine Nature 2 - Mineral based system that can be combined with salt water systems Salt System - creates chlorine from salt for a less chemical swimming experience Baquacil - Chlorine-free system that is less irritating to eyes and easier on pool liners.
